Millions of people drink softened water, the decision to do so is normally down to taste. Softened water complies with Drinking Water Regulations if it doesn’t exceed 200 mg/l, which it won’t unless you’re in an extremely hard area (hardness levels above 400 ppm).
When your water passes through the water softener, the minerals (calcium and magnesium) which can be harmful to your home and appliances are removed in a process called ion exchange. Although softened water poses no ill effects, some people prefer the taste of hard water. Depending on your plumbing system, your local dealer can advise on the install of a hard water tap for drinking purposes.
You may choose to add a filter to your drinking water tap. This works like a water filter jug and filters out any impurities from your water, giving you even more pure, better tasting drinking water. With this system, your drinking water bypasses the softener and then passes through a water filter before reaching your tap. The water filter system works in a similar way to the common Brita water filter, but delivers filtered water directly through a tap - removing the need for a cumbersome filter jug in your fridge.
